SMiLE | 5 years

September 2012, Europa Forum, Brussels, Belgium, SMiLE founding members Lion Tom Van Kerschaver (LC Brugge Maritime, MD112), Lion Sylvie Louagie (LC Oostende Beaufort, MD112) & Lion Ludwig Van Boxelaer (LC Dendermonde, MD112) present their first presentations about Lions and Social Media. Picked up and supported by LCI SMiLE grew into the information platform that it is today: Social Media for Lions by Lions.

Together with LCI and LCIF SMiLE is celebrating, but much less candles of course. But still something to be proud of. 5 years of informing Lions why and how they can use social media serving the community, helping shaping the public opinion.., connecting mountains… Making friends… serving…

Happy Birthday Lions

One hundred years ago, on June 7th Melvin Jones called to order the first Meeting at the LaSalle Hotel in Chicago.

For SMiLE, June 7th 2017 is therefore the birthday of Lions International!

A post shared by Lions SMiLE (@lionssmile) on

What better way to honor and celebrate 100 years of Lions than sending a birthday message to all Lions Worldwide using Social Media!

SMiLE create a special webpage especially for that purpose. http://www.lionssmile.org/lions100bday/

Showcase your club or individual birthday wishes to Lions making a short video on Instagram and include the hashtag #Lions100bday. We will make sure your message is display on our ‘Happy Birthday Lions’ page.

To stimulate you and your club, we created a little contest.

On June 15th the SMiLE team will select the 3 best video clips. First, second and third get a small wooden trophy during the international convention in Chicago at the SMiLE/Internet booth. If you or your club do not attend the convention will hand it over to your District Governor.

Post you video message on your own or club instagram account and include #lions100bday in the description!

Don’t know how to make video messages on Instagram or never used instagram before? be sure to check out these SMiLE resources to help you get startedhttp://www.lionssmile.org/instagram/

Wireless Passwords From Airports And Lounges Around The World

WWW – World Wide Wifi

In less than a moth more than 50.000 Lions are expected in Chicago for the 100th Lions International Convention. Lions from all over the world will travel by airplane to get there and spend hours waiting for connecting flights in airport lounges. Thanks to social media waiting is less boring if you have an internet connection. Luckily airports have Wi-Fi, but getting on the correct Wi-Fi network and have the correct password isn’t always easy. One solution for this is Wifox…

Wifox is a continually updated map of airport and lounge Wi-Fi passwords from around the world. In map view, you can tap any Wi-Fi icon where wireless information is available, and use the button to copy the password to the clipboard. The map is available offline so you don’t need an Internet connection to use WiFox when you’re traveling.

Offline versions available as Apps for iOS and Android
